4-Part Series on Queer Relationships & Dating

Hosted at UTSC, this will be a workshop series prioritizing the cultural reflections of 2SLGBTQ+ students. The space is open to all students, but will centre the voices & experiences of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour from within sexually and gender diverse communities.

The series will utilize media clips from popular shows, such as “Sex Education”, “Are You The One?”, “The Ultimatum: Queer Love”, “The L Word”, and more plus facilitated group discussions to explore important issues within QTBIPOC (Queer & Trans Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) communities. The isolation of our communities coupled with the underrepresentation of QTBIPOC relationships in popular media make QTBIPOC people (especially young people) vulnerable to the dangers of misrepresentation, romanticization and the glorification of toxic or abusive relational dynamics. This series will be designed as an anthology, giving participants the freedom to attend as many or as few sessions as is feasible for them.
